Sympatico / Nexxia (as577) smtp issues ?

  • From: Mike Tancsa
  • Date: Wed Mar 30 19:14:52 2005



Anyone know whats up with Sympatico / Bell's mail servers ? My customers are asking me why their mail is not getting there nor mail from sympatico is not getting to us. Most mail does not seem to be going through although network connectivity seems fine. I tried from 2 other networks and the issue seems to be the same.
